Colquhounia coccinea is a showy shrub native to the grassland of the Himalayas and Western China known for its soft, downy grey-green leaves with a whitish underside and vivid whorls of orange-scarlet flowers in summer.

These flowers are particularly eye-catching against the nearly silvery leaves and Colquhounia coccinea will grow to be a fantastic border shrub with an open but reasonably upright habit.

Colquhounia coccinea is best in a sunny, warm garden where it will enjoy the warmth.
